Student groups are a great way for pre-pharmacy and Pharm.D. students to connect with peers and get involved in the OSU Pharmacy community.

Executive Council

The Executive Council (EC) is the College of Pharmacy’s student government. Membership is composed of current Pharm.D. students elected by their peers. The EC collaborates with other student organizations to advocate for student issues, communicate student needs to the college administration, promote student’s professional development and provide positive leadership for the College of Pharmacy student body.

One of the special projects sponsored by the Executive Council is the annual Apothecary Ball.

See the Executive Council organizational chart (PDF), current list of officers and the Executive Council Constitution (.PDF).

Phi Delta Chi

“The objective of this association shall be to advance the science of pharmacy and its allied interests, and to foster and promote a fraternal spirit among the Brothers.” From the Phi Delta Chi Constitution.

Professional Involvement: PDC is a great way to get involved with the pharmacy community. Projects throughout the year include brown bag events, community health promotion and Adopt-a-Family service projects.

Brotherhood Experience: Relieve stress by hanging out with fellow PDC members. You’ll find us at bowling nights, staff luncheons, beach retreats, social dinners and barbecues.

Phi Delta Chi is a great way to get involved in the pharmacy community, make new friends, form study groups, gain scholarship opportunities and have fun!!
